    plf515, Eric Nelson, 4Freedom

    She's the Chair of The San Diego County Democratic Party.  She also was the biggest and most vocal Jerry Tetalman supporter in local politics.

    •  Wow, she became chair? (1+ / 0-)

      She did misstep a little and ought to have won the special election to win Cunningham's seat, but that's well in the past.  Was she the Chair in the 2012 season when Dems won the Mayor, a Supervisor seat, CA-52, and held the city council majority?

        Francine Busby, the one who originally challenged Brian Busby not once but twice for Congress, is running the San Diego County Democratic Party.  And now Bilbray lost the election last November.  Amazing.

        •  But was she chair in the 2012 election cycle too? (1+ / 0-)

            I believe she was elected to be Chairwoman this year.

            •  Ok, I hope she does well. (1+ / 0-)

              A hard act to follow after 2012 for SD Dems.

                Darrell Issa's credibility is going way down the tank right now, I imagine the Democratic base will be fired up more in 2014 than in 2012.  Francine Busby knows a thing or two about it because she actually faced similar odds herself before when she was running more than once in a Congressional race against Republicans.
